“If writers were good businessmen, they’d have too much sense to be writers.” Irvin S. Cobb
“If you have any young friends who aspire to become writers, the second greatest favor you can do them is to present them with copies of The Elements of Style. The first greatest, of course, is to shoot them now, while they’re happy.” Dorothy Parker
Well, if it’s January 16th, 2013 then we have survived the end of the world, which was supposed to be December 21st, 2012.
Some say that the end of the world has been re-scheduled for some time in February. Whatever.
In the timeless words of Mark Twain, “If the world comes to an end, I want to be in Cincinnati. Everything comes there 10 years later.”
